.300 blackout

Postby bgreenea3 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 1:49 am

Wandering through the toystore today, they had a complete upper in 300 blackout...
What I've seen on this cartridge intrigues me. 308 bullets out of a 5.56 NATO case necked up. Ballistics link a 30-30 with light pointy bullets or heavy 200-220 gr boolits at 1100 fps.....

Plus factory rounds are not much more pricy than 5.56...

Looks like a fun round to mess with.

The ones using the AR platform for hog hunting go the next step up, 458 SOCM. This round was developed for urban combat.....

Right 458 socom is thumper of a round .... Not really an economical round for plinkin' around with.
